Cosplay, anyone?
« on: April 09, 2008, 04:26:41 AM »
Now, I can\'t draw for crap, but I figured I\'d put my artistic contribution in here, anywho.

So, here\'s my Tank Girl cosplay,  debuted at an Anime convention this past weekend.


I have no idea who that schmo in the background is in the second picture.

For those who are in the dark, Wikipedia defines Cosplay as such: "Cosplay (コスプレ kosupure?), short for "costume play",[1] is a Japanese subculture centered on dressing as characters from manga, anime, tokusatsu, and video games."

Now, Tank Girl is a British comic, but I thought the costume was bitchin\' enough to be excused.

And yes, I made it myself. Some of the parts were simply modified, or worn as-is (the hat, shorts, and bear) but the rest I constructed mostly from scratch.

Here\'s a picture of the bear/purse:

So there\'s part of the reason I haven\'t been around recently. I\'m off to study for biology, but I\'ll try and get SOMETHING posted in the next few days, I promise!
You are the  hole in my head
You are the space in my bed
You are the silence in between
What I thought
and what I said
You are the nighttime fear
You are the morning when it’s clear
When it’s over, you're the start
You're my head, you’re my heart

OMG!!! That is sooooo awesome and hilarious, I almost just died here!  Hehe.

I need to look up that comic to get a good laugh.

Cosplay can be art. *nods* I am currently working on two cosplays, but have no conventions lined up for the wearing of them.  So much fun.

How heavy were those things, if you don\'t mind my asking? (I feel so rude asking that)

No worries! They were actually very light; I made them out of insulation foam.

You already know how I feel about you and your rocket tits, Bruce. But I\'m gonna say it again.

I CAME.

It\'s wonderful. WONDERFUL. The bear, the impressive and very expertly made rockets--and you look good in a pair of short-shorts too, my friend. >;3

And obviously the fellow in the picture is a ninja who is after you. And your incredible bra. It LOOKS like it lifts and seperates. or at least seperates. Who WOULDN\'T want that kinda support? >;0

The whole costume is great, but you really did a great job on the rockets, Brooce 8D They\'re epic. <3

Yayyyy you finally posted the pics, I thought you\'d forgotten!  You are so way HOT SHIT, I just want to throw you down, lick those hipbones raw and... snuffle you :cool:  David just about threw me out of the way when he saw you on the screen in all your glory AT LAST, fantastic work, wench!

Those rockets sag if you don\'t support them, though, right?  (I feel no rudeness asking whatsoever, which shouldn\'t surprise anyone, especially Kysis :p)  They turned out just like the picture, though, well done!  And the koala (which I, in all my anal monotony, must point out is not a bear) looks fucking awesomely skewed, too :D

Hurry up and come and live at my house, jeeze ;)

Shingami: Hey, thanks! I made it for Anime Detour 8D a relatively little-known con.

Odd: Oh, damn, lady. I better get my ass in gear, if that\'s what I have to lok forward to at your house <333
And they hold themselves up just fine, thank you very much. I really just held onto \'em to keep from running into stuff XD
See?

Once again, no idea about the goober in the background XD

Oh. My. God.

Bruce baby! That is... you are... :o  Kyaaaa! -squeals- You pulled it off with style! Very lovely boobies, darling. :thumbsup:

I can just picture you running around and having to hold onto them. Hilarious! And I agree with what EO said, the hotness of you almost made my eyes pop!
